I can’t need someone to believe in me. I have to know the truth about me.
These words won a place of importance in my heart as other, not so lovely, thoughts passed through my brain.
It was a bad day. One of those days when you need someone to walk up to you and say, “I believe in you”, only because you need to hear those words so badly.
**Here is a side note that might help you see from which angle I am coming: I have been reading So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore. LOVE IT! However, I am not loving what I am finding> I am an insecure person. Sure, I already knew that. Unfortunately, it’s worse than I originally thought. Fortunately, I am already finding healing in the process.**
As I was saying, thoughts were running through my pretty little head that were not so pretty themselves. In that moment of negativity and defeat, truth came knocking. I can’t need someone to believe in me. I have to know the truth about me. hmmm **Truth should out way what I think or feel** (Lovely lesson learned from Beth).
I have the truth written on my heart and at my bedside. He believes in me and has since before the creation of the world. He knows me. He loves me.
I HAVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH!
I can’t trust the world to always speak lovely things over my life. Finding security in my circumstances will leave me tired and defeated (Another Beth lesson).
His word says that “I am His workmanship [masterpiece] created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which he has prepared in advance for me to do.” Eph 2:10
Truth will overcome the lies of Satan any day.
In her book So Long Insecurity, Beth writes, "...I have realized with fresh astonishment that although we may have something unhealthy deep inside of us, those whom Christ dwells also have something deeper. Something whole, something so infinitely healthy, that if it would but invade the rest of us, we would be healed (42)".
In His Love,
